Statement: We need new leadership in Olympia. From jobs, the budget, schools and health care, Olympia hasn’t listened and it is time for change! As a cancer survivor, I know firsthand the challenges families face with health care. We must fight for our children and make school funding and accountability a priority. We must balance our budget - without costly special sessions - and demand job growth to put folks working again. On City Council and Planning Commission, I worked with others to get things done and will continue to do so. I ask for your vote.
